    Definitely match! Mixed gives me anxiety that it won't all look great pulled together!

    Hi FutureMrsKC! I think mixed decor needs to be very carefully calculated! But, when it's done well, it looks fantastic!

    Matching. Seems much more elegant and put together to me.

    Matching all the way, it would be more put together and simple. Mixing would just irk me and both me the entire time!

    Matching, much easier for me. I also love the mixing look, but too much added worry for me to do it.

    Mixing. It give the couple a chance to be creative and put their own flavor in the decor

    This is so true! It gives you a bit more flexibility to incorporate more styles, patterns, and colors!

    Hi Brae! I think both are beautiful, and agree that matching is probably much easier to execute!

    Matched. Mixed to me can just look unplanned and not uniform enough for me, i'm too neurotic.

    I think matching is much nicer

    that being said we are using unique elements on each table

    (hmm this ones starting to make me realize none of my “choices” are what I “like” lol, but somehow I still love them?!?)
